This is the first Llewellyn calendar that I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing, and I’m quite impressed! I’m a fan of artist Ciro Marchetti, and it’s a treat to behold his breathtaking interpretation of the 12 signs. Every year, I purchase two calendars: one for the kitchen, and one for the bedroom. For 2005, I know which calendar gets the bedroom position!
